Data Science Experience (DSX) is a powerful data science platform, powered by Apache Spark, that brings together the best-of-breed open-source tooling with unique IBM value-added features.

  • DSX maintains and super-charges Jupyter notebooks that support programming in R, Python, or Scala with a powerful Spark engine – and has R Studio embedded right into the platform.
  • By allowing collaboration with these powerful tools and modeling capabilities on shared data assets, DSX improves your team’s productivity and helps you reach insight faster.
  • After you build a model in Data Science Experience, you can deploy it into a cognitive application using Watson Machine Learning. Watson Machine Learning brings the best of IBM Research to improve the performance of your deployed machine learning models.

DSX has seen amazing feedback from our users based in our US-South data center and wanted to provide these best-of-breed data science capabilities to our European customers. Having DSX available in our London data center means that our users based in Europe can experience improved latency and faster, more efficient data transfer, along with all the support and security benefits of an IBM cloud data center. Putting our clients first means ensuring that the necessary connected servers and storage are close to client sites, in order to reduce distances that cause delays in computer interactions, and collaborating with our clients to make sure their users’ data remain within the nation of origin to comply with relevant data regulations.
